2:05 am
something earlier, a guy in a restaurant who needed your son like nobody's business. >> i'm not allowed to tell this story on pain of death. but now that you've -- >> sorry, cody. >> oh, i was -- oh, hodie. let me see how i could. oh, he's asleep. okay. nobody wake up cody and tell him -- one of my dearest friends in the whole world is sam haskell, who was my long-time great friend and still is, but my agent for like 35 years. he became head of worldwide television for william morris agency. and now he's doing a wonderful thing at warner brothers. had dinner with him and cody and cass i think wednesday night in the valley. so we had to get from hollywood to the valley. mistimed it by half an hour. we were late. i hate that. turns out there was a reason we were late. if we had been right on time we would have been out of dinner and gone -- all of a sudden we're waiting for the check and all of a sudden cody looks over and he goes, oh, my god. oh, my god. we all turn around.
2:06 am
this heavyset elderly man is choking to death. and his wife gets up and is behind him trying to give him the heimlich, which my mother calls the heineken. it's the heimlich. anyway, and so cody remembers that he'd been taught how to do it when he was in eighth grade. he says to the wife, may i perform the heimlich? she goes yes, yes, yes. english accent. and so cody goes over, starts in on the man, at least 30 times. now, cody is 6'4" and strong as an ox. and all of a sudden whatever -- it was apple pie the man was eating. you think apple pie goes down easy. >> that wasn't necessary. >> it's important because you know how most people, most people, if something is lodged and they are dying and seeing the pearly gates would be glad to get rid of something like that? >> oh, no. >> this is the thing about the elderly. they want their money's worth, if you know what i'm saying. the man chokes it up -- >> no! no! no. no.
2:07 am
>> rechews it. and swallows it. oh, yes. the whole time, thank you so much, young man, thank you so much. and -- because you know i appreciate your saving my life but i do believe i'm going to have very sore ribs for a while. and cody says you're welcome, sir, i'm happy to be able to do it. as we're leaving, we turn back to say good-bye one more time and the man takes his fork and starts finishing his apple pie. so there you go. >> i like it. good for cody. >> how about that? no, you know what? what i love about it is that he -- first of all, you never think they remember a thing you tell them. but he remembered what his teacher told him in eighth grade. >> yeah. how to do it properly. >> right. and then he also remembered to ask if he could do it so you have witnesses. i guess there's something called the good samaritan law. >> good samaritan law. >> but the whole time he was so strong, oh, dear god, please don't let me kill him because i'm so strong.
2:08 am
you know. so -- anyway, the point is i was ready to kill him on the way there. >> but not anymore. >> late, late, late. ready to kill him. at the end of the evening, ready to give the man, you know, the nobel peace prize. so it was cool. >> let me tell you one quick story. >> no. sorry. we're out of time. >> as usual. this was really kind of scary a little bit. i was flying to florida this weekend. so i got on the plane. and they were de-icing the plane. so i was like, oh, we're going to take a few extra minutes to de-ice. >> it makes me nervous. >> they say we have a security breach on this plane, we're going to park it in the middle and everyone turn off your cell phones. we're sitting on this plane for probably an hour while no one is really communicating because they say they don't know what's going on. they wheel up a set of stairs. these cops and port authority guys get on the plane, they go to the back to the back of the plane, grab three guys and take them off. they say there was some kind of a threat made to this plane, blah, blah, blah. so now we're two hours on the
2:09 am
ground. >> what a nightmare. >> then they say we're going to have to deplane everybody and do a sweep of everything and take all the luggage off. you know who's on the plane to west palm beach. everybody is older, with walkers and canes. it takes forever to get everyone off. i'm just saying. >> and their apple pie. >> and then everyone boards back on. all the waiting made these young kids -- i guess they were doing double shots of scotch. i don't know what they were doing. anyway, when we reboarded the plane, there was an older man here, an older woman, and an empty seat. the drunk-looking empty seat guy decides he's going to get in there and get in that chair, and he starts straddling the lady. and i'm screaming to lois, the flight attendant, get him off the plane because the door's still open. we're there now for almost four hours. >> what do you mean straddle the lady? >> like a drunk person. nobody loves me. they drag him off the plane. >> so he's going to find somebody to love him, huh? >> they drag him off the plane. and it turned out the threat was either the ex-wife or girlfriend or wife of the man had called up
2:10 am
and made the threat on the plane because her husband was on it. so it was just a phone call threat and all that chaos happened. four hours on the ground. >> giving everybody lots of ideas, hodie. >> everybody knows about that. that's on "law and order." that's an old idea. okay? it's an old, tired idea. but i'm just saying it was such a pain in the neck. four hours on the ground. >> yeah, i get that. but. >> but what? >> what happened to the guy straddling the lady? >> he got -- >> how come that never happens to me? >> can i tell you one thing? >> how old was she? >> the flight attendant lois, she had the best way of de-escalating, you guys. one lady said i've got to get off this plane. people were panicking. she said what's your name? should said my name's carol. carol, here's what we're going to do. as soon as this is finished right here, we're going to take the plane back to the gate and we're going to deplane and you're going to get off. and you don't have to get back on this plane if you don't want to. she looked people in the eye, called them by name. i've got to tell you, lois at jetblue, everyone gave her like
2:11 am
a big ovation because she calmed that whole plane down. >> wow, hode. >> anyway. so that's my story. whatever. >> it's a great story. >> don't look at me like that. >> doesn't beat my son saving a life, but it's darn good. i missed you, hoda woman. >> i missed you too. >> guess who came to see me in l.a.? >> who? >> hoda. you're hoda. rege. rege and joy came by to see our new place over there. it was so fun. we're standing by and looking out. rege has his arm around cass. he says see that? that's where i started my career. see that over there? it took a long time because rege has been around hollywood for a long time. >> how sweet. >> it was sweet. he sends his love to coda. >> he never calls me by my name. i like it. >> give my love to coda. she's great. she's terrific. >> we have a good show today, you guys. usher is with us from "the voice." so excited. that starts tonight. usher and shakira the new judges. >> getting great buzz. great buzz. >> carson was here earlier. he was saying this may be his favorite season already just based on the first couple of
